Wise Women of History
Our goal is to bring wellness and joy to the world. We believe that by improving the quality of a person’s life, we also contribute to making the world itself a better place.
We carry books, crystals, tarot and oracle decks, flower essences, pendulums, journals, jewelery, goddess statues, meditation benches, runes, essential oils, natural and ayurvedic toiletries, charms,
candles, incense, wands and more.
We avoid plastic, and carry as many locally-made and hand-made products as we can.
Wonderworks is also home to the Fleishman Gallery, accessed through the shop. The gallery is dedicated to
contemporary art with themes related to feminism, the environment, and spirituality.
We also hold a variety of classes in our gallery space, including tarot classes, pagan concerts, yoga, reiki, meditation, wise woman series, and
an endless amount of how-to workshops.
Featured Tarot Card: K I N G o f W A N D S from Shadowscapes Tarot
He holds his staff aloft, like a torch, a beacon of flame and light. Or perhaps he himself is that beacon, gleaming as he does with the fire that burns within his chest and as a searing crown upon his brow. He lifts the fiery torch up to illuminate the path and strides forward. The ground shifts, and the denizens of the woods step back. The trees part before him, lifting their branches to make way for his passage. The environment shifts to his will, and obeys his unspoken desires and commands.
The King of Wands is charismatic. The force of his charm is irresistible, such that the very world seems to mold to his desires and bow to his will. He is a source of inspiration, and bears his mantle of authority with an ease as if he were born to it. It is his natural element, burning bright within him
He has the spirit of the lion within him; proud and fierce, dominant, and unafraid to chase down what he desires. He springs forth into action with the confidence, strength, and lithe grace of that great beast. He is bold and does not balk at taking chances or striking out upon new, risky paths.
The Medicine Buddha Healing Mantra (long form)
The point of you is not survival, it’s aliveness. To be abundantly, unapologetically and dangerously alive. Survival mode is necessary to get us from A to B, it’s our ability to thrive under difficult and life-threatening circumstances — but Aliveness is the full alphabet, our optimal and natural state of being and it’s aliveness, not survival, that will get us everywhere.”
Sleeping Lady, Temple Period, 4000 - 2500 BCE.
This clay figurine, thought to represent a ‘mother goddess’, was found in one of the pits of the prehistoric Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni in Malta.
Featured Essential Oil: Tea Tree (or Ti Tree)
Famous for its use in natural household cleansers (it is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral), it is also helpful to our immune systems. It can stimulate the immune system to fight off infections, and help with bronchial congestion, asthma, coughs, and sinusitis. It can be used for cleaning infected wounds, but must always be diluted before touching the skin. A few drops can also be added to shampoo to get rid of dandruff.
